We treat the family as an emotional unit. Because children are not separate from family, any time a child is in therapy, the treatment is for the whole family. It is crucial to view the system as a whole, and, without blame or judgment, to understand what is being expressed about the whole system by the family member in the office.  We all progress individually along our lifespan, and your family configuration continually morphs and shifts as a result. Change in any individual affects the family as a whole. We understand family relationships to be one of the most important factors in psychological health, and support real, positive change through working not just with individuals as separate entities, but with the patterns of interaction among family members.
